Consultation has closed

The City of Onkaparinga is working with the local community, state government and the Roger Rasheed Sports foundtion (RRSF) to transform Morton Road Reserve into a sports and recreation hub.

With combined funding contributions from the City of Onkaparinga, state government, and the RRSF, we have $3.1M funding for an exciting first stage of the project to deliver a great place for play and skate and adventure.

The Sports and Community Hub will deliver a skate park, multi-use tennis/netball courts, junior and youth play spaces, seating, shelters, barbeque facilities, basketball node, irrigated lawn areas and toilets.

The Roger Rasheed Sports Foundation provides free sports coaching and mentoring programs for children from disadvantaged backgrounds and needs the right facilities to do this. We are working with the Foundation to look at ways we can expand these sports and mentoring programs, so we can reach more children through sport.

Elements that are yet to be funded include two additional tennis courts, lighting to extend the park's hours of use, outdoor exercise equipment and a running track.

HAVE YOUR SAY

Over the last few months we have been working on the draft design of the Morton Road Sports and Community Hub.

The design of the skate park has been guided by the 181 responses received from early consultation undertaken in April and May 2020.

It is now your turn to have a say and help shape the future of what will be an amazing space for the community.

We want to know what you like and what we can improve. What do you think needs to be included to make the space the best it can be and a place you want?

Your ideas are important to us. Join us at Morton Road Reserve on the 15th August between 10am and 1pm to chat about the project. We are planning some fun activities for the kids and coffee for the adults.

The Drop-In Session will be a COVID Safe event and follow current Government COVID-19 regulations, noting these are subject to change.
